Hi guys! I wanted to share my new online skillshare class: Character Concept Art: from thumbnail to final design.

I've teamed up with skillshare to bring you guys a class all about character concept art. There are videos and a complete project guide to guide you through the steps, from initial thumbnails right through to the finished article. I'll talk about brushes, thumbnails, posing, refining, detail, texture, what clients expect: pretty much everything I can stuff in there. I'm in the midst of putting this together and I'm being as thorough as possible to really try and give you a good sense of how I do what I do. 

A little extra info: The classes consist of various short videos explaining the steps behind the character concept work and there is a written project guide to accompany the class. It's not a live event so you can watch whenever you want to. You can submit your work into the student gallery so other members of the class can discuss the work and give feedback if they wish to. I myself will be looking at the work but I'm won't be providing individual feedback for everyone who takes part. It's a self initiated project. 

The class is currently open for enrollment and will be released on the 8th October. For those of you who sign up early there's an extra 10% discount with the code ERLYBRD

If this class goes well I plan on putting more together in the future explaining other techniques :)

This sounds awesome. I LOVE character concepts and really want to get better with them.  How does a class like this work?  I've never done a class that wasn't part of school.  Are the videos and info only available for a certain amount of time or will it always be open after enrolling?
